Catalog Season...

Have you all seen the new Nova Natural catalog (or is catalogue, which is how I've always spelled it)?? WOW, it is filled with such beautiful toys, crafts, and living products and I love nearly every single thing! If you haven't checked them out, I highly recommend doing so! We have their organic terry ball and some of their wooden books, all of which Lovebug adores!

Here are some of my new favorites:

*Bubble Buggy...these come in such fun colors!
*Baby Boo Silks...Lovebug would adore these!
*Wee wooden mug...she's not quite ready for this but how precious!
*Rainbow stacker...don't tell her but Lovebug is getting this for Christmas!
*Rainbow bowls...this would be so much fun for her!
*Four Elements set...LOVE this of course, but I know Mama and Dada would have more fun playing with this right now than Lovebug though :).

And really, that's just the beginning of all of my Nova loves and I could go on and on. However, much of it isn't age appropriate for Lovebug just YET. Anyway, check them out if you haven't already.

Speaking of catalogs, this time of year our mailboxes can easily get pretty full of them, right? I have tried to get off nearly all of the lists either by calling the company, emailing them, AND going to Catalog Choice, which is a free service that lets you pick and choose which catalogs you want to receive. That way you're no longer getting the ones you don't want (and just end up recycling), but still getting the ones you do actually enjoy going through (and then saving or recycling:)!

I love getting Nova Natural because all of the beauties in it, but I also love getting it because this is the first one all year we've received. I really appreciate that since some companies waste a ridiculous amount of paper sending new catalogs out every couple of months (I'm talking to you Hanna Andersson!). We bought an organic sweater from Hanna after Lovebug was first born and on came the crazy amount of catalogs...thankfully, I was able to end that (finally). But then last month we bought her some special organic pajamas for Christmas Eve and the catalogs have started again, so I have to get on that asap...

However, HERE is something wonderful about the Hanna Andersson catalog - Lovebug loves it! She loves going through it and seeing all the babies and children and tearing it up (as seen above:)...It entertains her for quite awhile! So when Mama or Dada need to get something done - we give her the Hanna Andersson catalog! :)

We have a mail and telephone preference service here which we are signed up to, to stop getting unwanted junk mail. But the Boden catalogues here come like there is no tomorrow, everytime there is a promotion, aaghhh!!!
